Flora & Muse- Coffee & Flowers + Bistro & Bar
The concept of this place is great...one part coffee shop, pastries and fresh flowers; one part bistro and bar. It is beautifully decorated, has a nice, large patio and the food and cocktails are good. My friend Christa and I met here around 5 on Tuesday afternoon for a drink and early dinner. It was not crowded at all. And the bistro side is a lot bigger than what it looks from the front. We actually thought it was TOO big for what it was. When I think of a bistro I think of a smaller, cozy little place but this was very large and open. Once we were seated we ordered some Strawberry Margarita's and we each ordered a Panini. The drinks we had were good and very pretty...they were served with fresh berries and flowers :) I got the Turkey & Spinach panini and it was good, but not $12 good. It should have been cheaper. Our server was nice but she was a little coo-coo and seemed high or something...
Anyways, we enjoyed this place and think it is a great addition to City Centre. Their brunch menu looks delicious so I would definitley come back for that. And the pastries were hard to resist, so I will have to try those next time. :)
